We’re Going On a Bear Hunt

We’re Going On a Bear Hunt

Do you want to come with us on a bear hunt? Join in the fun this August around Liverpool – it promises to be a fun Summer!

We’re Going on Bear Hunt, the classic chant-aloud by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury, started a publishing phenomenon over 30 years ago with readers swishy-swashying and splash-sploshing through this award-winning picture book favourite.

This Summer, join bear-lovers everywhere and celebrate Liverpool’s Year of Reading by taking part in the city-wide Bear Hunt! Around the city, bears are hiding and you have to spot them! When you find a bear – take a photo of the Bear and collect ten to get your very own certificate! Huge thanks to Walker Books for their support with this event.

How do I take part?

We are so excited to hear you want to come on a bear hunt! We’re going to catch a big one! We have a list of places that bears have been spotted, look out for them in windows in shops, restaurants around Liverpool, keep your eyes peeled.

When you spot a bear, take a photo on your phone of you and the bear – if you’re brave enough that is! Post it on social media with #LiverpoolBearHunt so everyone can see you have found a bear and have been very brave. If you can, do tag in @WalkerBooks and the author Michael Rosen so that everyone knows you’ve been on the Bear Hunt!
